Home and Away is lining up another horror accident as Zac MacGuire suffers a terrifying fall amid his attempts to reunite with wife Leah.

Zac risked everything when he recently cheated on Leah with his novel editor Sam, and he'll pay a high price for his infidelity when his marriage breaks down as a result.

Australian viewers have been watching the fallout of Zac's adultery for the last few weeks as Leah struggled to forgive him, but sadly the worst is yet to come when he makes another bad decision.

Devastated at the car crash his life has become, Zac will turn to drink in a bid to ease his pain – before deciding to make one last attempt at winning Leah back.

What Zac fails to realise, however, is that the alcohol has severely clouded his judgement (and coordination) and so trying to climb up to her bedroom was never going to be a good idea.

Unsurprisingly, disaster does strike as Zac continues to climb onto the roof of her house, only to lose his balance and fall to the ground.

Leah and Roo immediately rush to Zac's aid, but the severity of the situation becomes apparent when he is rushed into hospital and diagnosed with a life-threatening brain injury.

The medics explain to Leah that Zac is suffering a heavy bleed on the brain and they need to act fast. However, TV Week reports that when Zac's condition suddenly worsens, it's unclear whether Zac will actually pull through at all.

As Leah fears that she could lose her husband forever, she is also forced to face the wrath of Zac's angry son Hunter – who wastes no time in blaming her. Will Zac pull through? Or is Leah about to suffer another devastating loss?

Home and Away's UK audience will see these scenes in June. The show airs at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5.
